"But we didn't stop there at just making that call, we have also ensured that all our community healthcare workers actually go to the communities and register those that are their patients and assist them into getting them into the system," Simelane-Zulu said.

Meanwhile, 21 more vaccination sites are expected to be opened in the province this week.

Premier Sihle  Zikalala says the sites will help cater to teachers who are next on the list for the jab.
